What? No honerable mention to the huge rubber leech from the "Faces of Death" movie?

Lab_Frog is thinking about using an army of such creatures to take over the Earth.

Haven't seen that "Faces Of Death" leech but it sounds interesting....
And "Frog-g-g!" was really pretty good (and god speed with the domination)...

Here are a few more I've discovered:

-The Island Of The Fishmen (1979)
-The Queen Of The Fishmen (aka The Fishmen And Their Queen) (1995 TV)
-Creature Of Destruction (1967 TV)
-It’s Alive (1969 TV)
-The Alien Dead (1980) (sort of)
-Bog Creatures (awful but it fits)
